*My Favorite Mods*
Alternate Start - Live Another Life [XB1]
Adds a totally new feel to the game by changing the starting story. Misery and despair have haunted you all your life. Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, you've been arrested and thrown in the dungeons. Your trial was supposed to be weeks ago, only nobody has come for you. It's been so long since seeing daylight you no longer know what month it is anymore. The dungeon is cold, damp, and worse still, you're running out of food. You will be given the opportunity to choose your race and then choose a new life for your character to lead.
Relationship Dialogue Overhaul - RDO [XB1]
Adds over 5,000 lines of completely voiced dialogue for NPCs for more than 50 voice types, focusing mainly on friends, followers, spouses, and rivals. All dialogue is voiced using the original voices from the game, achieved through re-adding existing dialogue in new and suitable places, as well as editing together multiple lines to form brand new dialogue.
Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch [XB1]
The goal of the Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch (aka USSEP) is to eventually fix every bug with Skyrim Special Edition not officially resolved by the developers to the limits of the Creation Kit and community-developed tools, in one easy-to-install package.
Features hundreds of gameplay, quest, NPC, object, item, text and placement bugs fixed. No unsafe changes (such as deletions of stock objects). Designed to be compatible with as many other mods as possible.
Slave Pack Riekling Porter [XboxOne]
This mod adds a little funny looking Riekling Porter who lives alone on his self proclamed Wak Wak Island, a small rocky Island in front of RavenRock. You have to do a favor for him in-order for him to join you. I won't spoil that for you.
Now, if I can just figure out what MODS are and how they play into this, I will be golden. So, now I have something to play when I am not killing zombies i State of Decay or Dying Light.
This version does come with all DLC, it's worth mentioning here that you cannot remove any of the DLC like you could on the Legendary edition, which simply means, the Vampire random attack parties start showing up at level 8. On Legendary, you could choose not to install Dawnguard until you wanted to deal with the vampires being a threat to your favorite merchants and other NPCs.
It also comes with fully "new" achievements, meaning if you have all achievements on Skyrim Legendary or vanilla, you can get them all again. Using mods does disable achievements but Bethesda does have the Creation Club which offers paid mods that do not disable achievements. Some believe it's a controversial move but I haven't had any crash problems with the Creation Club mods but have with regular free mods.
The modding is the big, new feature and this is what I do since I want the achievements. I played my non-modded character for roughly 100 hours, up to level 55 with some power-leveling in there. I started getting bored and decided to try the modded character out. I did not start over. Instead, I loaded up 8-9 mods and continued from my last game.
This, to me, is very important. You can do what I did and what it does is start a new set of saves. Meaning, at any time, I can switch back to playing my unmodded level 55 character and still get achievements or can load my modded level 55 character and just have some silly fun. A few things worth mentioning, there are still bugs in the non-modded game, the quest, "Blood on the ice" in Windhelm wouldn't start for me but if I mod it and put the Unofficial patch in my mods, it lets me play that quest fully, which is relatively important since you'll need it to buy the Windhelm house Hjerim. There's no achievement tied to this quest so you get to play that quest, have access to one of the best houses on the game and lose nothing for doing it modded.
My goal is rather simple, complete all achievements, then switch to my modded character. The modded character allows much more immersion. In Skyrim you're limited to marrying from a set group of characters, you can only adopt 2 kids and you have very little control over your followers. With the mods, you can marry just about anyone in the game, adopt up to 6 kids and have full control of up to 32 followers. There are mods that to me ruin the game like a ring that lets you carry 10,000 pounds of equipment and weapons that do thousands of points of damage. I'm using the mods to add replayability. You can skip over roughly 50% of the quests in this game and still get all the achievements so you can then finish those other 50% quests with a modded character with all the added things you believed should have been in the game. The unofficial patch has fixed two quests that were bugged. I also like the mod that changes how the females look since most are very rough looking, you can pretty things up. The follower mod is good for many laughs. I had two followers with me while fighting a dragon and commanded both to dance in place. So, while I'm pounding away on the dragon, in the background, are my two followers dancing around like nobody is watching. I also use the immersive dialogue mod to make everyone more interesting and maybe more importantly, so everyone doesn't repeat the same line every time you see them. It knows your relationship to the other character and responds accordingly. No more running into your home and hearing your housecarl say, "Hello, friend, I hope you're not here to cause trouble." You'll now hear various sayings from, "I've missed you!" to "How was the hunting?" There are a few other mods that I like a lot like the one that adds more weapon types, those include composite axes (axe with a spear/sword), scoped bows, a knuckle-type dagger, the missing longswords, it's stuff like this that I love seeing in mods. My favorite mods are the ones that add extremely difficult "boss" type characters with unique armor and weapons. Most of these have their own locations and they don't really alter the game very much. You just fast travel to their keep or whatever location they're at and fight them. These are so much harder than anything in the Skyrim game. I fought one named Gotha who had great armor and mask with massive horns coming out. I used 16 health potions and probably 15 minutes, running around, jumping, dodging, timing my every attack just to kill this one character. It adds a bit of a Dark Souls feel with these bosses and I think that's one of the real weaknesses of Skyrim. Once you have the Dragon weapons, have them improved/tempered, you become nearly invincible but these Boss character mods add a whole new dimension. I do use the improved blood and extra execution moves mod as well. It adds a lot of realism to those snowy fights where you hit someone 20 times with a sword only to see a little blood. With the mod, there is blood everywhere on the snow. Last, I do use a few of the home mods like Waterview and Windyridge. These add homes in areas where there are no other options and Waterview has many areas to plant your alchemy ingredients plus custom stands to put your different weapons and masks on. It's located on the other side of the mountain beside of Whiterun and Riverwood. Windyridge is up in Winterhold.
The Elder Scrolls, specifically Skyrim, will most likely be my all-time favorite game. Another series has every chance to pass it and that's Fallout but so far I still prefer Skyrim to Bethesda's other masterpiece. This Special Edition, if paced and used with mods that add difficulty, is the best version. I do play it some on the PC but prefer the XB1 version just because it feels like my favorite console game was majorly improved.
